I think it’s also so babyish and ridiculous to have the coaches jump up right next to the gymnasts after their routine is over and celebrate right with them. Doesn’t happen in other sports! And it makes the coach somehow just as important as the athlete at the conclusion of the routine. I understand the point about spotting, but elite coaches spot and don’t run up like a hyperactive fan and crowd the gymnast right after his/her routine. There is a way to spot and then make yourself as unobtrusive as possible, and gymnastics coaches should do that. Also, this won’t solve the problem of judging angle all by itself, but it would help!
